All About Rural Transit

Did you know that TOGETHER! was a partner in making transportation accessible in rural areas of our region? Alongside Intercity Transit and Thurston Regional Planning Council, we support Rural Transit, which connects the communities of Rochester, Tenino, Bucoda, Rainier and Yelm, and the Confederated Tribes of the Chehalis Reservation to the greater tri-city area of Tumwater, Olympia and Lacey. Rural Transit connects to Twin Transit in Lewis County and Intercity Transit in Thurston County.

As of June 4th, Rural Transit offers more mid-day trip on Routes 3 and 4 to Chehalis Tribal Center and Centralia, as well as direct, no transfer trips to Centralia for veterans. Rides cost $1 each way and are free for veterans, active duty military and children under 5 years old. Rural Transit also accepts passes from Intercity Transit, Twin Transit, ORCA and STAR.

Access to services is a necessary part of advancing the health and wellbeing of all young people, and many youth and families in our area depend on public transportation in order to access education, healthcare, employment and social services. We are proud to be able to support this partnership with other organizations in our area.

If you'd like to know more or help us spread the word, please email with any questions, comments or suggestions, or to request fliers and schedules for your community or place of business.
